"I trained with the Dark Forest to become a stronger warrior. I needed some cat to believe in me, and the Dark Forest cats did—or at least they seemed to. But I wasn't fighting against the Clans. I'll always be a WindClan cat first. This battle with the stoats is my chance to prove myself."
— Breezepelt to Crowfeather about his loyalty in Crowfeather's Trial, page 364-365

Breezepelt is a lean[11] black tom with amber eyes.[12]

Breezepelt is a WindClan warrior that has served under Onestar's and Harestar's leaderships in the lake territories. Breezekit was born to Nightcloud and Crowfeather alongside two other siblings who died after birth. Breezepaw was apprenticed to Whitetail and was increasingly arrogant due to feeling left out of his father's attention. He would pick fights whenever he could and eventually thought Crowfeather hated him. As a warrior, Breezepelt developed a deep hatred toward Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, and Jayfeather after it was revealed they were his half-siblings.

As Breezepelt began to train in the Dark Forest, his hatred for his half-siblings and father grew stronger. He became a mentor to Boulderfur, and during the Great Battle, he fought for the Dark Forest; however, they were defeated, and after the battle, Crowfeather nearly disowned him. WindClan believed Breezepelt should be driven out, but Onestar insisted on giving him another chance. To prove his loyalty, Breezepelt bravely fought the stoats on WindClan territory, especially after Nightcloud's disappearance. After the battle with the stoats, Crowfeather and Breezepelt reconciled, and he made amends with Lionblaze, now growing to respect his half-brother. Eventually, Heathertail became his mate, and together they had four kits, Smokekit and Brindlekit in their first litter, and Applekit and Woodkit in their second.

Power of Three

"It had been obvious from the start that Breezepaw hadn't wanted to come to the mountains. And Crowfeather hadn't acted like he was glad to have him along. He didn't seem proud of anything Breezepaw did, unlike Brambleclaw, who made Hollypaw feel like the best warrior in ThunderClan when he praised her."
―Hollypaw thinking about Breezepaw Eclipse, page 14
Breezepaw is a WindClan apprentice and the only surviving kit from Crowfeather and Nightcloud's litter. He is a troublesome, confrontational, and aloof apprentice, and his mentor, Whitetail, has to frequently reprimand his attitude. His mother is fiercely protective of him and remains at his side when he almost dies at the daylight-Gathering, a stark difference from his father who constantly argues with his son. Breezepaw also develops a rivalry with Lionpaw over Heatherpaw's feelings. Breezepaw teams up with Lionpaw, Hollypaw, Jaypaw, and Heatherpaw to rescue Swallowkit, Sedgekit, and Thistlekit from the flooding tunnels.
Despite not wanting to, Onestar makes him and his father travel to the mountains to assist the Tribe. The two do not get along during the journey, and Hollypaw realizes Breezepaw's anger must stem from his father's lack of attention. He earns his warrior name, Breezepelt. When Hollyleaf reveals her true parents are Crowfeather and Leafpool, Breezepelt snarls at his father in anger.

Omen of the Stars

"This has nothing to do with Brokenstar. Lionblaze should never have been born. None of them should. [Hollyleaf] is dead, now it's your turn, Lionblaze."
―Breezepelt's response to Ivypool and Lionblaze The Last Hope, page 308
Breezepelt gains an apprentice, Boulderpaw. He is openly scornful of his half-brothers and insists they never should've been born. Fueled by his anger and hatred for his father, Breezepelt trains in the Dark Forest. Tigerstar promises Breezepelt he will succeed his vengeance on any cat with the Dark Forest's help. Breezepelt follows Jayfeather and Poppyfrost to the Moonpool and attempts to kill them with Brokenstar's help. During a fight with Lionblaze, Crowfeather breaks up the scuffle, and Breezepelt hisses at him, staying at Nightcloud's side.
During the Great Battle, Breezepelt fights on the side of the Dark Forest and attacks his Clanmates. Ivypool, a fellow Dark Forest trainee, tries to reason with him, but Breezepelt is firmly set on his path. He attempts to kill Lionblaze, but Crowfeather attacks him. When Breezepelt argues that Crowfeather always hated him, Crowfeather denies it, adding that Nightcloud put those ideas into his head.

A Vision of Shadows

"He's hardly the cat to talk about trustworthiness!"
―Alderheart's thoughts on Breezepelt River of Fire, page 127
He and Heathertail become mates and have two daughters, Smokepaw and Brindlepaw. Breezepelt is defensive when the other Clans come to WindClan territory for lungwort. When Leafstar announces she has taken in Sleekwhisker and Yarrowleaf, Breezepelt yowls they are traitors. Several cats are unamused by the irony, and Bramblestar defends the two former Kin members. His daughters become warriors, Smokehaze and Brindlewing.

The Broken Code

"The only reason we aren't killing the impostor is because the real Bramblestar might need his body one day. But his ghost hasn't been seen in nearly half a moon. And that means that his spirit might be gone. In that case, what are we waiting for?"
―Breezepelt at a rebels meeting Veil of Shadows, page 158
He and Heathertail have another litter of kits, Applepaw and Woodpaw. He is among one of the many cats attempting to break through the Moonpool, and celebrates prematurely when the rock breaks through the ice. Later, he attends several rebel meetings about Bramblestar's impostor, as Crowfeather was a banished codebreaker. Out of the rebels, Breezepelt insists on the harshest methods, such as camp invasions and execution. His daughter, Smokehaze, is killed during a battle instigated by the impostor.

"I know very well what you might think about me. But in my opinion, some warriors in other Clans are just looking for a reason to fight. Doesn't that make them just as much of a threat to our day-to-day lives as the cats who once trained with — or even fought for — the Dark Forest?"
―Breezepelt about his accusers Crowfeather's Trial, page 140
In Crowfeather's Trial, several of WindClan's warriors are still reluctant to accept Breezepelt back into the Clan after the Great Battle. Some cats even wish him to be exiled or killed, notably Gorsetail and Leaftail, who refuse to forgive him at all. Breezepelt, Nightcloud, and Crowfeather search the tunnels for the white creatures Hootpaw saw and are attacked by the sheer number of stoats. Nightcloud goes missing and is assumed dead. During her vigil, some cats believe Breezepelt caused her death. Breezepelt, grieving the loss of the only cat who loved him, drifts further away from his Clanmates, while Crowfeather tries to stand up for him.
Crowfeather finally recognizes the cat his son truly was, a scared and emotionally confused tom, and the two start to bond. Heathertail also becomes closer to Breezepelt. When Crowfeather discovers that Nightcloud is alive, he, Breezepelt, Gorsetail, Hootpaw, and Heathertail rescue her from the Twolegplace. After the patrol comes back to WindClan, Breezepelt is overjoyed that Nightcloud is found, but is criticized by Onestar if he is loyal to his Clan. At the Gathering, Breezepelt and other Dark Forest warriors tell the Gathering that they are as loyal to their Clan as the rest of them. During the final battle with the stoats, Breezepelt saves Lionblaze's life and becomes critically injured. Kestrelflight saves him after Jayfeather reluctantly gives him burdock root, and Breezepelt reconciles with his family and Lionblaze.

"Breezepelt was looking smug and Dovewing felt an urge to rake his ears. She was sure he hadn't wanted to be a better WindClan warrior. He had wanted power and strength, and that was all."
―Dovewing about why Breezepelt agreed to be trained by the Dark Forest. Dovewing's Silence, page 24
In Dovewing's Silence, when the Clan leaders are decided what to do with the Dark Forest trainees, Onestar believes Breezepelt should be accepted back into the Clan due to WindClan's losses during the Great Battle. Blackstar disagrees, since Breezepelt betrayed his Clanmates, leader, and the warrior code. Bramblestar agrees, but Onestar insists he doesn't care why Breezepelt trained in the Dark Forest, but trusts his loyalty now. Mothwing suggests the warriors should take a new oath, but Dovewing thinks that Breezepelt is anything but noble and doesn't wish for forgiveness for his actions.
